Milan Teenage Sensation Eyeing Up History Against Frosinone

Milan and Frosinone go head-to-head in Saturday’s handsomely-looking Serie A showdown at the San Siro. Given a severe injury crisis in the home camp, prodigious kid Francesco Camarda has made the matchday squad for the second consecutive weekend. 

The San Siro crowd witnessed a historic moment last Saturday when Milan boss Stefano Pioli withdrew Luka Jovic to field Camarda during a gutsy 1-0 win against Fiorentina. At 15 years and 260 days, Camarda became the youngest debutant in Serie A history

Despite failing to do much in his 12-minute cameo appearance, the Milan whizz-kid took the record from Bologna’s Wisdom Amey. With Rossoneri 1-0 up and lacking numerous first-team stars, Pioli only had interest in defending the slender lead, derailing Camarda’s hopes of scoring on his senior debut.

However, the Milan prodigy can still achieve another incredible feat if Pioli gives him a chance against Frosinone. Jovic is on the verge of adding another start to the tally. Olivier Giroud’s suspension and Noah Okafor’s fitness problems have shortened Pioli’s options for a center-forward role.

Not only is Jovic underperforming, but his notorious lack of match fitness means he’s unlikely to last on the pitch for more than 75 minutes. That increases the likelihood of Camarda making his second straight appearance for Milan. 

And if he can spice it up with a goal, he’d become the youngest goalscorer in Serie A history. An impressive milestone, held by former Roma man Amedeo Amadei, has been in force for almost a century. Amadei struck the back of the net at 15 years and 287 days in 1937.

Camarda can shatter that record as Milan fans wait with bated breath.
